Inspiration: Orange



There's something about the colour orange that makes it pretty intimidating to wear. It's brash, bold and at times far too in your face. However, when it's done well (like the outfits I've selected above) it's a dazzling colour for a hot summer, reflecting everything that is so appealing about the season - the warmth, relaxation and a more 'happy go lucky' approach to life.

If the prospect of wearing it still seems daunting (as it does for me) start with one piece, incorporate it into your wardrobe and begin building outfits around it. As you become more confident wearing it, I have a feeling that you will begin to love it.

Orange is very hard for me to wear, since I'm a ginger I'm always scared it looks a bit tacky. Burned orange and rusty orange go perfect though! x

Orange is a great alternative to red for a pop of color in your wardrobe. I just love it paired with gold or silver!

Love this! Everything you say about orange is so true. it's bold, daring, fabulous, but when done wrong, it looks awful and overwhelming :(. However, the color is so pretty and when you wear it with confidence and accessorize well, it looks great. Thanks for posting these pictures! They're so inspiring :)
